Default Paint ideas for a red/silver 03

I was wondering if anyone had done any combination of the following things...


-Removed mirrors, installed blockoff plates
-Painted windscreen same color as nose fairing (silver in my case)
-Targa solo cowl seat painted silver to match


Anyone have any input? Good ideas? Bad ideas? If someone could photoshop something I would really appreciate it!

Aww, my favorite color!

I'm not a fan of painting the windshield- it scratches/chips pretty easily and just looks kind of funny.

The solo cap is always a good addition but is expensive. Other than that just keep it the same.

Nice LOR exhaust! I tried taking my mirrors off and just thought it was very unsafe because i use them way too much in heavy traffic so i ordered some handlebar mirrors because i love the look of the nose w/o the stock mirrors.

I'm not a big fan of colored windscreens. The black one you have on now looks good to me.

I just got CS4 so im still learning but this weekend when i have time to mess around with it ill try and edit your bike.

I run block offs and now love them (at first not so much). I did end up putting a mirror on the left handle bar. I am looking to do something this year to eliminate that.. Not sure what though.. May be a circle mirror on the air duct cover someplace.. I will post pics with what ever i do.

Windshield painted same colour as the front fairing looks horrid. I know, I see it every day on mine

Also, paint really, really doesn't like sticking to plexiglas so you'd need special primer or the paint will bubble.

+1 on not painting the windscreen. My buddy did it and looks HORRIBLE! It has cracks everywhere on it, had to by a new one. As for the mirrors personally I would keep them unless your going to use it as a track bike. I use mine all the time. I like to know whats going on behind me.
